- Caraway, the dried fruit, is a biennial herb native to Europe and western Asia and cultivated since ancient times.
- Caraway has a distinctive aroma reminiscent of anise and a warm, slightly sharp taste.
- The caraway plant produces its seeds in achenes. Achenes are a type of fruit defined by their simple, dried form – and they contain only one seed. So technically, the “seeds” we use from the caraway plant are actually achene or fruit.
- Caraway is loaded with fiber and several important minerals, including iron, magnesium, copper, and calcium.
- Caraway seeds are also a rich source of antioxidants.
- Boosts Appetite.
- Good for digestion.
- Add a spoonful of caraway seeds to potato salad or coleslaw.
- Add a pinch to any tomato-based sauce or soup.
- Sprinkle over roasted potatoes or sweet potatoes.
- Sprinkle onto baked apples to enhance the flavor.
- This is why caraway seeds are a common savory spice in traditional European cooking and baking
